Description Florian Haag 2011-08-25 15:31:27 UTC
The documentation for some methods, such as http://docs.go-mono.com/monodoc.ashx?link=M%3aPango.Layout.GetExtents(Pango.Rectangle%40%2cPango.Rectangle%40) , gives advice which may have been valid for the original C-based Gtk+ API, but which is not for Gtk# in Mono. That method linked above has two out parameters, and the documentation says "or null to indicate that the result is not needed." Passing null to an out parameter is not possible in the CLI.
